Learn, Grow, Thrive
Your kids were built to learn, grow, and thrive, but over half of US children have a chronic health condition or disability. We live in a new normal where kids routinely take multiple meds for everything from asthma and allergies to behavior, learning, and mood problems, and where pediatric specialist visits for neuropsych evals and GI work ups are routine. Want to get off that merry go round, or avoid it in the first place? Judy will help move your family toward robust health and away from the pharma-dependent kid routine. She talks up integrative medicine and nutrition tools to energize the innate capacity kids have to be healthy, enjoy school, fight infections, and go out and play. Quarterly show.
